  • In Prayers for a Privileged People, this much-published author sculpts, as carefully as if with a chisel, prayers on behalf of those who are people of privilege and entitlement , the haves , at an urgent moment in our society. The privileged face, on the one hand, the seduction of denial or, on the other, the temptation of despair. These prayers of wisdom and prophetic power remind us that when things go wrong, when we are afraid, and when we feel prodded by those who lack voice, there is a conversation we can have , a conversation situated amid the promises and commands of God.
